    A woman is having a major rant, in fact, she posted it twice.

    She uses an American Express card and had her card hacked recently. So phoned up QVC to change the card they had on file as she has easy payments coming out(Dyson was mentioned), seems QVC no longer accept AMC cards. But if you have one registered with them and the account number does not change they will still let you use it. But since the woman now has a new card with new account number they are saying no. She goes nuts over it and refuses to register her debit card with QVC, not sure why if she had her AMC registered with them? She did mention something about not knowing where her card was hacked from, perhaps she thinks it is QVC? Anyway, she had people suggest just paying off all the easy pays didn't like that. Someone said QVC might past her to debt collections if she defaults on her payments.

    She won’t have her debit card linked top her account which she is perfectly entitled to do but if you can’t use the card you specifically want there is no option but to say thanks but no thanks. No company is going to make exceptions just for you.

    If it was me and I was so determined I would just get a bank cheque (not a personal one) and post it to them and close my account. What card does she think the debt collection people will want her to use?

    No idea about what debit card she has but she does not want to use it to pay QVC? She could phone CS and just pay off the easy pay via the phone and that would be it.

    I don't know if other businesses have cleverer systems than QVC which allow them to change the card on which they purchase goods or not. I seem to recall if I had ordered an item on easy pay I couldn't use it if the card was due to expire before all payments had been made - this was the case at the point of placing the order. However, if I was ordering on auto-delivery I could, as you can change the card used. I think this is because with AD you make a full purchase for each separate delivery. Possibly it's a limitation of QVC's systems, or it could be regulatory compliance.
    Legally, having received the goods, a customer is under an obligation to pay the price agreed for the goods. QVC are entitled to ensure they receive that payment. She could ring up CS, pay off the easy pays, then delete the card from her account - or ask for them to take payment on a one-off basis and not add it to her account. That's probably what I would try and do in that situation. I cannot see the point in huffing and puffing over it on social media... particularly as it is all in a public domain for anyone to see and take note of...

    I ditched my Amex card because so few places accept it; no one ever said to me,

    "That'll do nicely!"

    Was that a while ago? I find nearly all do now, including Aldi who started accepting it last year (Lidl still don't but I rarely spend more than £5 in there), and a lot of the smaller businesses near me. In December they had Small Business week where if you spent £10 in any of a number of local shops, salons, etc, you got a £5 statement credit. I did quite well out of that. I do have other cards just in case but I use my Amex more than anything.

    We didn't accept were I worked as the charges from the bank were so high. Still see signs in shops stating American Express not accepted.

    I’m not surprised as I know their fees are higher but I must just be lucky. All the places I shop locally and nearly all I shop with online accept Amex, plus my car service/repair and insurance company. Maybe they will stop accepting it? I do carry other cards just in case but my Amex gets used by far the most at the moment and the cashback is great.
